Really late pass on this one. Hey, when I heard that Antoine Dodson was performing, I decided to pass on the 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards (I eventually had to go back and watch it). But of course the best thing of the night was the cyphers…
G.O.O.D Music Cypher (featuring Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean, CyHi Da Prince, & Common)
This was the highlight of the night. If anything, this shows that G.O.O.D. Music may be strongest team in Hip-Hop right now (Yea, even over Young Money). Kanye & Pusha T killed it, but I feel the best verse was from Big Sean. He sounded the most hungry (CyHi also did his thing). Rosewood is still in effect.
Raekwon, Wiz Khalifa, Bones Brigante, & Yelawolf
Happy to see Yelawof here. Props to Raekwon for what he did for Inspectah Deck too.
Royce Da 5’9′, Tyga, Kuniva (of D-12), & Diamond
Royce was crazy as usual but Kuniva did way better than I thought. Diamond sounded flat compared to what we got from another female rapper that was in cypher last year.
Ice Cube, Doughboy, OMG, Rev Run, Diggy, & JoJo
Wow. Good to see Ice Cube & Rev Run rapping with their sons. Legacy.
Reek Da Villian, Mickey Factz, & Zawcain
Even though this one had the lest star power, it wasn’t bad. Why didn’t Busta rap?
